The children love spending time in our outdoor area. We provide a stimulating and safe environment where the children can learn, play, explore and take risks.

Risky play allows children to challenge themselves on many levels:

  • Physically – by climbing a little higher, running a little faster or jumping a little further.
  • Emotionally – feeling out of control or overcoming fear
  • Mentally – learning how to get out of trouble, learning your own boundaries and that of the environment around them.

Our garden is full of fun and engaging resources for the children to use and learn such as:

  • A mud kitchen where the children love to make mud pies and potions.
  • A water area full of tubs, jugs, and underwater creatures,
  • A cosy reading area,
  • Mark making table,
  • Chalk table,
  • Sand,
  • Playdough area,
  • Construction and small world area,
  • Maths and phonics table which has fun games for the children to learn their numbers and sounds.
  • Games area.


When the sun is shining, we love to have our snack outdoors. Where the children are provided with fresh fruit, milk, and water.
